Jardin d'Hiver #1
Comment peut-on être (du village d’à côté) persan (martien)?


A new platform for the region’s contemporary art scene: first edition of the inaugural Jardin d’Hiver biennial showcasing the work of invited artists. Under the direction of the art critic and freelance curator Jill Gasparina, this show makes the principle of collage its own.

Each edition of the biennial will be awarded to an external curator in an open competition, the aim being not only to support the region’s artists and raise their profile by displaying their work, but also to bring new perspectives to bear on the local art scene by welcoming external experts to MCBA.

Throughout the museum’s history, its dialogue with artists living and working in the canton has taken a range of approaches in terms of acquisitions and exhibitions. The latter have included both solo and group shows bringing together established and emerging artists. MCBA continues to promote the local contemporary art scene in a regular programme of events: Jardin d’Hiver builds on the earlier programmes Rencontre avec… (1972-1982), Regards sur le présent (1982-1990), Échanges d’espaces (1994-1995), Préludes and Perspectives romandes (1995-1999), as well as Accrochage [Vaud] (2003-2016).
